The accompanying cuts are 
from photos of Mr. Sherman Hol- 
lingsworth, of Russiaville, Ind., 
taken before and after my treat- 
ment, one year apart. He gained 
forty pounds in the meantime and 
no trace of the cancer is left. It 
was of the rose variety as large as 
a silver dollar and three times as 
thick. Mr. Hollingsworth will an- 
swer inquiries, send stamped en- 
velope. Mr. J. Q. Rairigh of Peru, 
Ind., cured of Cancer of the face, 
he is a member of the church, 
write him.

IN OLD AGE, 

when the natural strength begins to fail, a mild invigorating remedy becomes an ac- 
tual necessity. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is especially adapted for such cases. It 
strengthens the weakened organs and gives renewed vitality. Mrs. H. C. Waldorf, 415 
Second St., Toledo, Ohio, writes: " My dear mother, now in her eighty-seventh year has 
been completely restored to health by the Blood Vitalizer to the great astonishment 
of the local doctors who had given her up." This pure root and herb-remedy can only 
be obtained from the manufacturers, Dr. Peter Pahrney & Sons Co., 112-118 S. Hoyne

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ELDER JAMES QUINTER. 




In an old family Bible, that is highly 
prized, there is a record, saying that 
James Quinter came into this world Feb. 
1, 1816. This occurred in Philadelphia. 
When the boy was thirteen years old, 
his father died. He was then living 
twenty-five miles from the city. At the 
age of seventeenhe became a member of 
the Brethren church, and so spiritually- 
minded was the boy that no one ever 
questioned his conversion. Every leisure 
hour was devoted 
to study, for he 
was a lover of 
books and was 
fully bent on se- 
curing a good 
education. H i s 
school privileges 
were few, but he 
was so diligent 
in his studies 
that he soon 
qualified, himself 
for teaching, and 
then spent a 
number of years in the schoolroom. 
While teaching others, he pursued his 
studies and in time acquired a very lib- 
eral education. 

When twenty-two years old, he was 
called to the ministry, and at once en- 
tered upon the work with a zeal and in- 
telligence that favorably impressed oth- 
ers. He was a man of deep piety, and 
at all times very quiet, but when he ap- 
peared before the public, he was always 
prepared, and his sermons were listened 
to with marked attention. He was 
called the boy preacher, and there was a 
great demand for his sermons wherever 
he was known. The thorough prepara- 
tion he gave his discourses, and his clear 
and forcible way of delivering his mes- 
sage, impressed even those who did not 
accept the doctrine he preached. 

While never forward, he did not at 
any time shirk duty. When among the 
older brethren, he showed all due re- 



James Quinter. 



spect for age and office, still, when asked 
to preach, he responded to the call read- 
ily, though meekly. It is related of him, 
that one time, when quite young, and 
little known, he accompanied a number 
of ministers on a horseback trip to the 
Annual Meeting. Arrangements had 
been made beforehand for preaching 
each evening along the entire line of 
travel. The older brethren thought it 
would be good for all of them to take 
their turns, filling the appointments, 
commencing with the older ministers 
and ending with the youngest one. It 
was so decided, but Bro. Quinter 
proved to be the youngest preacher in 
the party, so his turn came last. 

It so happened that when his turn 
came, the appointment was in a city of 
some size, where a large church had 
been secured, and where a large assem- 
bly would naturally be expected to hear 
one of the ministers of special ability 
preach. On learning this, some of the 
older ministers, who had years of ex- 
perience at the sacred desk, expressed 
some sympathy for the young brother 
who, they feared, might not be equal 
to the occasion. They talked the situa- 
tion over among themselves, and stood 
ready to relieve him should he express 
the least desire to have one of them do so. 

But to their surprise the young and 
inexperienced preacher showed not the 
slightest timidity in approaching a large 
city audience in one of the most fashion- 
able churches. When the time came, he 
was ready for his discourse. The house 
was packed with the most cultured peo- 
ple of the city, and most of them were 
accustomed to listening to men of schol- 
arship and experience. They even felt a 
little doubtful about the ability of the 
boyish-looking young man in the pulpit 
to interest them. Calmly Bro. Quinter 
read his Scripture, and proceeded to de- 
liver a discourse that commanded the at- 
tention of the entire audience from start 
to finish. The people were not only sur-

A HUNDRED YEARS. 

A medicine cannot live a century unless 
it possesses merit. The combination of 
herbs and roots that constitutes Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer was discovered over one 
hundred years ago by old Dr. Peter 
Pahrney. It has been doing a grand work 
of blood purification and strength restora- 
tion ever 'since. Further particulars glad- 
ly supplied by the sole makers. Dr. Peter 
Pahrney & Sons Co., 112-118 S. Hoyne Ave., 
Chicago, 111. 



TWIN SISTERS. 

Health and Happiness can properly so 
be termed — the two are inseparable. Dr. 
Peter's Blood "Vitalizer, the old, time-tried 
herb-remedy, makes you happy by making 
you well. Not a drugstore medicine. Sup- 
plied to the people direct by the makers, 
Dr. Peter Pahrney & Sons Co., 112-118 So.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



prised but they were profoundly im- 
pressed and even delighted. 

As the company continued their jour- 
ney to the Annual Meeting, there were 
no more doubts expressed about the 
ability of the young brother to do his 
part of the preaching, and to do it even 
better than most of those having years 
of experience. But this was characteristic 
of the man. Though quiet, he was studi- 
ous, and when he had anything to do he 
made the best possible preparation. His 
discourses indicated hard work, a fine 
system and a thorough grasp of his sub- 
ject. 

We have never seen a finer looking 
man in the pulpit. His very appearance 
drew an audience to him. When your 
Office Editor was twenty years old he 
rode fifty miles on horseback to hear a 
debate in which Bro. Quinter engaged. 



The discussion lasted four days, and 
never before or since have we witnessed 
such a display of coolness, confidence 
and ability to present facts and argu- 
ments. During these four days we lis- 
tened to every argument presented, and 
studied the man with more interest than 
we had ever studied a book. In our way 
of sizing him up at the time, he was a 
marvel, and made on our mind an im- 
pression that has never left us. 

While on the Annual Meeting plat- 
form, at North Manchester, Ind., in 1888, 
and in the midst of a prayer, he fell 
asleep. Thus ended the life of a man 
who will long be remembered as one of 
the most noble saints with which the 
Brethren church has ever been blessed. 
In the years to come we may have men 
of great scholarship, but none will excel 
him in piety and meekness. 



WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN. 



Before the Revolutionary War Bro. 
Christopher Sower, a fine business man, 
conducted a large printing establishment 
in Germantown, Pa. He printed Bibles, 
hymn books, school books, papers and 
Sunday-school supplies. He 
was a good writer as well as 
an able preacher and elder, 
and a well-edited weekly that 
he published, is said to have 
enjoyed a circulation of ten 
thousand copies, and was prob- 
ably one of the most influen- 
tial journals in the country. 
The Sower Publishing House 
was regarded as one of the 
most prosperous printing es- 
tablishments in America. 

But during the long struggle ^S: 
for independence he lost all 
his property. He was a de- 
vout Christian man, but was misunder- 
stood, and deprived of everything he 
owned. His lands, houses and large 
printing plant were all taken from him, 
and he was turned out into the cold 
world without money or food, and with 



barely enough clothing to cover his 
aged form. When the war ended, he 
was too old to build up his business 
again, and so all of his efforts, as well 
as the efforts of his father before him, 




Christopher Sower Printing House. 

were lost and placed beyond the possi- 
bility of recovery. 

We have sometimes wondered what 
might have been the result had Bro. 
Sower not met with this misfortune. The 
close of the war would have found him

BLOOD WILL TELL, 

if impure, upon your general health; strength will be replaced by weakness, your com- 
plexion dotted with outbreakings of impurity. More than one hundred years ago, Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer a root-herb remedy for bad blood was compounded that has 
never been equaled. Jacob M. Greider, Salunga, Pa., writes: " I have used your Blood 
Vitalizer as an invigcrator for my system. I am past three score years and ten but 
can do a man's labor on the farm. The Blood Vitalizer cured me years ago of eczema." 
This old herb-remedy is supplied direct to the people by the sole proprietors, Dr. Peter 
Pahrney & Sons Co., 112-118 S. Boyne Ave., Chicago, 111.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



with his large publishing interests on his 
hands, and with the growing prosperity 
of the country his business would cer- 
tainly have increased. He would have 
continued publishing his papers, books 
and Sunday-school supplies, and in the 
course of a few years the Brethren 
might have had not only a good church 
paper issued by the Sower House, but 
also a fine line of Sunday-school litera- 
ture, and thus stood in the front ranks 
of progress. 

All of this and even more might have 
happened had Bro. Sower not met with 
his misfortune. In those days there 
seems to have been no controversy 
among our people in regard to papers, 
Sunday schools or advanced education. 
There would have been no controversy 
whatever about a church paper. No one 
would have thought of opposing Sunday 
schools, or Sunday-school literature. In 
fact, we would have led all others in Sun- 
day-school supplies, for the work had al- 
ready been started and that is more than 
could have been said of other publishing 
houses. In fact, Sunday schools would 
have beeri a necessary part of our his- 
tory. J" / 

Possibly we would have had at least 
one college, which would n§w be more 
than one; 'hundred years old. It might 
have 'grown to a university of wide in- 



rluence. Our thinkers in the early his- 
tory of the church had no occasion for 
being opposed to education, for not a 
few of them were university men, and 
stood well with the educated and cul- 
tured. 

But so it was. The Brethren church 
lost much when Bro. Sower's splendid 
printing plant was taken from him, and 
he was deprived of all his possessions. 
After this misfortune we were nearly 
seventy years without a paper or any 
medium through which the members of 
the church could be reached. During 
that period we lost our interest in the 
Sunday-school work as well as in ad- 
vanced education. It is a wonder that 
the different congregations hung togeth- 
er and maintained the original form of 
doctrine as well as they did. To be with- 
out a medium for more than two gen- 
erations, v/as a trying experience. The 
church, however, lived through it, but 
she lost much of her interest in Sun- 
day schools, education and the publish- 
ing business. She had to begin again, 
lay a new foundation, and what we now 
have we ought to have had fifty years 
ago. True, we are far in advance of 
where the church was in the time of Bro. 
Sower, but not as far as we might have 
been, had all gone well with him and his 
printing establishment.

SCHWARZENAU AS I SAW IT. 
BY A. C. WIEAND. 



[Before giving this article to the public, 
Bro. Wieand had planned to make a second 
trip to Germany, with a view of studying 
the environments and records of Schwarz- 
enau more carefully. We urged him to let 
us publish the article now and make his 
further investigations later. To this re- 
quest he finally, though somewhat reluc- 
tantly, consents. We are sure that the 
communication will be read with more than 
ordinary interest. — Ed.] 

Several years ago it was my privilege, 
in the spring time, on my way to the 
University of Jena from the Bible Lands 
and Italy and Switzerland, to contem- 
plate a pilgrimage to the one spot in all 
Germany most dear to every member of 
our beloved Brotherhood. I had spent 
a month in the city of Geneva, Switzer- 
land, very pleasantly, and continued my 
journey down the Rhine, entering Ger- 
many from Basle, Switzerland, and going 
by river steamer most of the way as far 
as Cologne. It was my determination, 
if possible to find the place, to spend a 
few days at the village of Schwarzenau, 
where two hundred years ago the heroes 
of the faith laid the foundations for that 
Brotherhood which is so dear to all of 
our hearts. 

It was with no little difficulty, however, 
that I was able to find the location of 
the village. There are several villages 
of this same name in the German Em- 
pire, and I had never heard any other 
clue to its location than simply its name, 
and so, when in looking up the matter, 
I found that there were several villages 
of the same name, it was with consider- 
able doubt as to whether or not I should 
be able to find it; but looking in the ac- 
count of Brother Miller's visit there, I 
found that he had gone to Schwarzenau 
from the university town of Marburg. 
Following up this clue with a good deal 
of persistency, I was able, finally, to lo- 
cate the place. 

From Cologne I journeyed to Siegen; 
from there through Laasphe, the native 
home of the elder Christopher Sower, 
and then took a local train on a side line 
of the railway to the extreme terminus 



at Raumland-Berleburg. From here it 
was necessary to take the stagecoach, 
for five or six miles further, for the vil- 
lage of Schwarzenau; and, indeed, the 
whole province of Witgenstein is still, as 
in the days of old, remarkable for its 
seclusion and difficulty of access. There 
was time here, at Raumland, to walk 
over to the somewhat larger town of 
Berleburg, which has the castle of Count 
Von Witgenstein. I was very much in- 
terested, indeed, to see the court-yard 
and palace of the saintly man, who was 
noted among the nobility of those days 
for being a Pietist, or Separatist, as the 
people then called those who were more 
spiritually minded and who separated 
themselves for conscientious reasons 
from the formalism and deadness in the 
State Church of the times for the sake 
of spiritual growth and development. 

Here, then, is the secret why this prov- 
ince and this little village should be- 
come the birth-place of the Brethren 
church. In those troublous times the 
people who dissented from the lethargy 
and apostasy of the State or Catholic 
churches, were bitterly persecuted, al- 
most all over Europe, by both Roman- 
ists and Protestants, and had to flee to 
some secluded spot for safety, and it was 
precisely because this Count Von Wit- 
genstein was himself one of the number 
that he offered asylum and protection to 
all who, for Christ's sake and the Gos- 
pel's, forsook all, more closely to follow 
in the footsteps of our Lord. 

Natuarally, too, these refugees would 
not locate at the capital of the province, 
but at some still more secluded small vil- 
lage, difficult of access, and so it was that 
they followed down the River Eder and 
grouped themselves nearer to the village 
of Schwarzenau. 

As we approached the village, after a 
five or six miles' ride in the stage-coach 
we noticed on our left hand, up under 
the mountain side, in a narrow vale, be-

DYSPEPSIA 

is the prevailing malady of civilized life. To be dyspeptic is to be miserable, hopeless, 
depressed, drowsy, weak and useless. It destroys the teeth, complexion, strength, peace 
of mind and bodily comfort. This ailment yields promptly to Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. 
Rev. W. Poston, Holly Springs, Miss., writes: "I think the Blood Vitalizer is the gentlest 
and most effective medicine for the stomach and bowels I have ever tried." This old 
time-tried herb-remedy is not to be had in drugstores, but direct from the manufacturers,

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



tween two mountains , rather close to- 
gether, a number of very modest' dwell- 
ing houses scattered up and along the 
dale. It is today called Hiitten-Tal 
(that is, Hutdale, or valley of the huts). 
It was up along this narrow valley that 
these religious refugees located when 
they came from their native lands, and 
having forsaken all for the Gospel's sake, 
they were, of course, very poor and 
could not afford to build ordinary houses 
and so they hastily and laboriously made 
for themselves these huts, or shanties, 
as the Westerners would say, and from 
this cluster of " shanties " the valley was 
called Hiitten-Tal. 

Upon arriving at the hotel, or country 
inn, I made inquiry as to whether any- 
thing was known that in that village a 
church had been begun many years ago, 
but could find no clue to any such tra- 
dition until I made a visit to the home 
of the pastor in charge of the State 
Church in the village. I found him in 
his study, together with a fellow pastor 
from a neighboring parish, and the room 
was filled with smoke from their cigars. 
I stated my mission, and the pastor re- 
plied that he himself was new to the 
place, but that he had discovered a manu- 
script in the parsonage which had been 
left behind .by the previous pastor who 
had been there for a number of years 
and had made somewhat extended and 
careful research into the religious his- 
tory of the community. 

This, of course, was good news for me, 
and my expectations were aroused with 
reference to what I might be able to 
find. Of course I begged the minister 
to read this record, especially such parts 
of it as might have any reference to our 
people or the Pietists or Separatists or 
Anabaptists. He soon found that part 
of the record and then I learned some- 
thing of the philosophy of our history as 
a church which I had never heard men- 
tioned before, nor elsewhere. 

It seems that the village of Schwarze- 
nau had become famous far and wide 
as a place of protection for religious ref- 



ugees, and hither had come people from 
many lands. I have often regretted that 
I did not make accurate notes on the 
spot, but as I recall the narrative, there 
were refugees here from France, from 
Switzerland, from various states of Ger- 
many, from Holland and even from Eng- 
land. There were Quakers, Huguenots, 
Mennonites, Anabaptists, Separatists and 
Pietists — heroes every one, men of pro- 
foundest convictions, men and women 
who had left all for the sake of their 
convictions, people strong minded 
enough to brave the various persecu- 
tions of the times, to venture out into the 
unknown, foreign land, and alone, men 
and women who bore branded on their 
bodies the marks of the Lord Jesus 
through the persecutions which they had 
endured. 

But, moreover, they were men and wo- 
men who, though they were alike in their 
conscientious convictions and self-de- 
nials, were as various in their opinions 
and beliefs as the names mentioned 
would seem to indicate. 

Now, in any community of such peo- 
ple, with such convictions and such be- 
liefs, with men of such character and 
minds, what, in the nature of the case, 
would be bound to take place it is not 
hard to predict. That is exactly what 
happened here. Each was sure he was 
right; each was determined to convince 
the other; each was firmly settled in his 
own belief, and inevitably the strongest 
controversies arose. There was the ut- 
most confusion of beliefs and preachings, 
there was clamor and conflict of tongues, 
a war of words, so much so that the 
people in the village called the place 
" Babel/' and no doubt rightly so because 
of the confusion and heat of the words 
and discussions. 

And what came of it all? Well, final- 
ly a few of the more devout, of the more 
heroic, of the more far-sighted and pro- 
phetic spirits, men who really were will- 
ing to risk ALL — even their own no- 
tions — for the truth's sake, these spirit- 
ual-souled, large-hearted, broad-minded

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ones agreed upon what became and ever 
since remained the first of our funda- 
mental and formative principles of the 
church they founded. With absolute de- 
termination they resolved to follow the 
New Testament, that alone, all of it, but 
no less, as their only rule of faith and 
practice, with the vow that where it would 
lead them they would go, and what it 
said they would do, as fast as God would 
give them light, and with the most ear- 
nest and united prayer to God for guid- 
ance in their search. They gathered to- 
gether in a Bible school, and a prayer 
meeting to study the Word "of God, to 
find out exactly what it said and required 
and to follow it to the end. Gradually 
they were unified, their convictions 
crystallized and deepened as they were 
proven or disproven by the Scriptures. 

And then, finally, having found that 
there was not anywhere, so far as they 
could discover, any church which kept 
the ordinances and faithfully practiced 
other things which the Word of God 
taught, with a clear consciousness of 
what they were doing, they determined 
to organize a church of Jesus Christ 
which should obey all of the Word of 
God, and keep the ordinances as they 
were delivered unto us. Finally there 
were eight on that November day who 
had the practical heroism to carry into 
actual execution their determinations, 
who went to the River Eder and there 
were baptized according to the apostolic 
injunctions and method. 

And now, in closing, I should like to 



record my conviction as fo the probable 
spot in the River Eder where this scene 
which has become sacred to us, was lo- 
cated. I walked up and down the river 
for a mile or more, and on both sides of 
the village, examining with some care 
every place where baptism might be 
properly performed. There are many 
such places, and we cannot decide the 
matter; but then there is another ele- 
ment which, it seems to me, is decisive. 
If, as has been indicated in a former 
paragraph of this article, these people 
had located in the valley called Hiitten- 
Tal, and if that was the scene of their 
discussions and their wrestlings with 
God in prayer, and their scripture 
searchings, it is not likely that they 
would go into the midst of the village, 
where they were despised, to perform 
the sacred rite, but they would most 
likely go down the valley to the nearest 
point in the river immediately at the 
foot of the vale, across the meadow, and 
there, it is my belief, the sacred and his- 
toric ceremony which actually and offi- 
cially organized the church of the Breth- 
ren, after the most earnest prayer and 
consecration to the living God and his 
Gospel, was consummated in the name 
of him who said, " Go and make disci- 
ples of all nations, baptizing them into 
the name of the Father and of the Son 
and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them 
to observe all things whatsoever I com- 
manded you; and lo, I am with you all 
the days, even unto the consummation of 
the age."

LAUGH AND CURE DYSPEPSIA. 



The best medicine in the world for 
indigestion, says an old physician, is a 
good hearty laugh. High spirits and 
plenty of fun at the table are better dys- 
pepsia cures than all the doctors' stuff 
in creation. Also masticate food thor- 
oughly, eat slowly, and give yourself 
plenty of time at the table. It is said 



that Gladstone chewed every particle of 
solid food about thirty-five times before 
swallowing it. Of course he did not 
count the number of times he chewed 
his food, but he masticated it until it 
became almost a paste in his mouth. 
He attributed his long life and good 
health to this habit along with cheer- 
fulness and much outdoor exercise.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ELDER CHRISTIAN HOPE. 



BY M. M. ESHELMAN. 



Christian Hope was born on the Is- 
land of Fyn, Denmark, Dec. 7. 1844. He 
received seven years' education. Pos- 
sessing fine natural abilities, his father 
(a teacher) encouraged him to engage in 
ministerial work. He became an active 
worker in the Baptist church. From 
youth he longed to be with a people who 
were willing to obey Jesus' command- 
ments as a means of spiritual growth. 
He sought such people in New York, 
Chicago, and oth- 
er large cities, 
but found them 
not. Through in- 
formation in 
church histories 
he obtained a 
somewhat imper- 
fect knowledge of 
the practice o f 
our Brethren, and 
then made dili- 
gent search for 
them. After more 
than a year's 
seeking he found Bro. Geo. Zollers, at 
Hickory Grove, Carroll county, 111., and 
was, by him, baptized Oct. 25, 1874. Lo- 
cating in Lanark, 111., he was called to 
the ministry at Cherry Grove, Illinois, 
Nov. 12, 1875, by a practically unanimous 
vote, all members present from the vari- 
ous churches being permitted to vote. 
He was the first missionary sent by the 
Northern Districft of Illinois, and, of 
course, the first foreign missionary of 
the Brethren church. 

Bro. Hope and family were very much 
impressed by the Brethren's form of 
worship and government. He ad- 
mired the " order of the church " in 
dress, believing that by this means 
many members were saved not only from 
frivolous fashions, expensive and bur- 
densome in the keeping, but that the en- 
tire tendency of such an order was to 




Christian Hope. 



maintain gospel simplicity and keep 
out caste of a very injurious kind. He 
was captivated by the sight of the plain 
apparel of the members in that day, and 
lived to see the wisdom of it both in Eu- 
rope and America. It had much to do with 
his associating with the Brethren. It 
was more than form to him; it was the 
expression of a heart set on God in the 
interest of salvation. With him it began 
within and grew from there out, not hid- 
ing it but by uncovering it to all. He 
was the author of several works on 
Christian themes. 

He was continually effacing self and 
exalting Christ. He was a meek man, 
impartial and ready for what Jesus says 
in his Word. His conversation was 
deeply spiritual. It was a comfort to 
talk with him; for his thoughts were 
from above. He had a more than ordi- 
nary understanding of the entities of 
God. Often he thrilled his auditors with 
things deep and strong from the Bible. 
He was a close student of the whole 
Bible, and could tell the things of God 
in several languages. He was a born 
leader and organizer. As such the Spirit 
gave him great power. God made no 
mistake in choosing Bro. Hope as our 
first foreign missionary under organized 
effort. From that time on the mission 
spirit has grown wider and wider. Bro. 
Hope easily forgave wrongs, and suf- 
fered meekly. 

He gave ten years of his life to the 
work in Denmark and Sweden. On his 
return to America he settled on the 
farm at Herington, Kans., given him by 
the Brotherhood, and then did much in 
missions in this land. His love for man- 
kind, his desire to lead others to Jesus, 
kept him aglow in the higher truths of 
God. On the atonement, baptism, con- 
version, penitence, and living the life of 
Jesus he had most exalted ideas and had 
j the ability to express them clearly. In

the home he was very cheerful and loved 
his family as a man of God always does. 
His children and his wife were precious 
jewels to him. He knew how to be af- 
fectionate; for in him was love indeed. 
I admired his home life, his kindness to 
all the house, his patience and goodness. 
He could — therefore did — overlook the 
weaknesses of youth and mature age. 



He certainly did unite kindness with gra- 
cious firmness in government, therefore 
was successful in his labors. He suf- 
fered long and finally went in peace, for 
God took him, leaving a rich legacy as 
a father, a brother, a missionary, and a 
lover of mankind. He was truly great 
with God, for such greatness is made up 
of great goodness. 



ABRAHAM H. CASSEL. 



BY ELIZABETH D. ROSENBERGER. 



About twenty-seven miles northeast of 
Philadelphia the Indian Creek flows 
through the rich meadow lands of Mont- 
gomery county, Pennsylvania. It is a 
clear little stream, winding around the 
hills through narrow valleys. Near a 
bend of this river you find the home of 
our brother, Abraham H. Cassel, Penn- 
sylvania's great 
antiquarian and 
historian. Men of 
letters from all 
parts of the 
world have found 
their way to his 
home, anxious to 
obtain some in- 
formation which 
only Bro. Cassel 
could give, for he 
was often re- 
ferred to as a 
walking encyclo- 
pedia, 
when William Penn was 
Germany, he invited some

Abraham H. Cassel 



1682, 



In 

traveling in 
Mennonites 
settle in his province 
to accept his invitation were the ^ances- 
tors of Yelles Cassel, the father of 
Abraham Cassel. His mother was Polly 
Harley, a granddaughter of Christopher 
Sower, also a granddaughter of Peter 
Becker, the first elder of the church in 
America. These two were married, and 
lived in Towamencin township in a very 
lonely place far from town, or any pub- 
lic road. Here Abraham H. Cassel was 



born Sept. 21, 1820. Both of his parents 
were Pennsylvania Germans and could 
scarcely speak English. 

We can only refer briefly to his early 
struggles while obtaining an education. 
His sister taught him to spell. In a 
small picture book he learned to read, 
but knowing nothing of English, it was 
a difficult task to pronounce and define 
the words in this English picture book. 
It was far easier to master the Euclid 
unaided in later life. His uncle, George 
Cassel, observed him trying to write with 
a chicken feather which was pointed like 
a pen, but had no split. He explained to 
the boy how a pen should be made, and 
he proceeded without any teaching to 
learn to write. 

But you are wondering why he did 
not go to school and we answer, Be- 
cause his father forbade his going. His 
father belonged to that illiterate class of 
Germans who were vehemently opposed 
to all education. Learning was sinful, 
even the desire for it was an evil pro- 
pensity to be stamped out, if possible. 
He said, " If you give a child learning, 
then you make him fit or able, to commit 
a forgery; he may become a counterfeit- 
er or do any other wickedness that he 
wants to do, which an unlearned, igno- 
rant man would be incapable of doing." 

So he made it a matter of conscience 
to bring up his children in pious igno- 
rance, but he did not succeed with Abra- 
ham. He believed that children should 
know just enough to read the Bible, but 
no more; he refused to read a news-

DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITAX.IZER 

has puzzled many by its peculiar efficacy in the treatment of all blood and consti- 
tutional disorders. It goes right to the root of the disease. It acts on the blood, 
eliminating all impurities. Nature does the rest, — health follows. Eld. J. I. Judy, Em- 
den, 111., writes: " I think the Blood Vitalizer is one of the best medicines ever offered 
to the people. I shall always keep it on hand for those who call for it." Not a drug- 
store medicine. Supplied direct to the people through local agents appointed by the 
sole manufacturers, Dr. Peter Pahrney & Sons Co., 112-118 S. Hoyne Ave., Chicago, 111.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



paper although he lived to be 80 years 
old. So his son, Abraham, went to 
school but six weeks in all his life. By 
his own efforts he obtained an education 
and became the noted historian. 

As a child, an old book would keep 
him quiet for hours, so the foundation 
of his library was laid before he was 
eight years old, for he kept every scrap 
of printed matter he could lay his hands 
on; his parents opposed his book-buy- 
ing as much as his studying. He com- 
menced teaching school Oct. 12, 1840, 
and soon had a wonderful reputation as 
a teacher. April 1, 1843, he was married 
to Elizabeth Rhodes. This union was 
blessed with eight children, six of whom 
are still living. 

As a child I was awestruck, when I 
first saw his library. The books rising 
tier upon tier, up to the ceiling, the en- 
tire length of the room, only books 
everywhere, were a wonder to me. He 
had copies of all the early almanacs from 
1714, numbering over a thousand copies. 
He had a complete collection of all the 
early newspapers and periodicals pub- 
lished in America from the time the 
Boston News Letter was published in 
1704. He has a complete list of Colonial 
Records dating from 1683 to the last 
month of the year 1700. He had nearly 
all of the different editions of the early 
Bibles, including the different transla- 
tions from A. D. 1470, numbering over 
fifty quarto folios. He had also a very 
good copy of the Aiken Bible, for which 
the British Museum recently offered 
$500. He had a complete edition of the 
Franklin, Saur, Ephrata and other yearly 
publications. He had a hundred English 
Grammars, older than Lindle} r Murray's. 

His library soon began to be known 
as a great storehouse of information. 
Men of letters, the world over, came to 
visit him. Professors, students, authors 
and editors, men of title and wealth, 
came here and remained days and weeks 
studying, copying documents, and col- 
lecting material for many books. John 
Greenleaf Whittier obtained the material 



for his poem on " The Pennsylvania 
Pilgrim," from this library. He and 
Brother Cassel were warm friends and 
corresponded for years. Governor Pen- 
nypacker and Brother Cassel have been 
lifelong friends. Their tastes are similar 
and the Governor is a frequent visitor in 
the home of Bro. Cassel. Prof. Edward 
B. Tyler, of Oxford University, England, 
spent several weeks in this library. Prof. 
Oswald Seidensticker, of the University 
of Pennsylvania, said he pumped his in- 
formation of his volumes out of the well 
of Cassel's library. 

We are glad to note that he was not 
without honor in his own county. When 
Montgomery county celebrated her cen- 
tennial at Norristown, twenty-five years 
ago, there was a grand parade, miles in 
length on the formal opening day. The 
county officers and men of note occupied 
carriages in the procession. Bro. Cas- 
sel was seated in the first carriage. He 
was so modest and unassuming in his 
manner, that his friends took special de- 
light in showing him honor on various 
occasions. As a member of the Penn- 
sylvania Historical Society, his fame will 
never be forgotten. 

We are glad that the bulk of his valu- 
able library is carefully preserved in the 
library of Juniata College at Hunting- 
don, Pa. He collected and preserved all 
documents relating to our first churches, 
their customs and ordinances. He was 
a familiar figure at our Annual Meetings 
for some years. As sight and hearing 
partially failed, he remained away from 
our general conferences, but he never 
omitted his regular church attendance. 
Every Sunday morning found him in his 
accustomed seat in the old Indian Creek 
meetinghouse. We saw him last in July 
of 1907. When we asked him some ques- 
tions regarding Alexander Mack, he was 
as ready to answer as in days gone by, 
but sight and hearing are almost gone. 
We were made to think that he is only 
waiting now beside the silent sea for the 
boat with the muffled oars. 

As we study Bro. Cassel's life with its

meager opportunities and its rich frui- 
tion, it should be an inspiration to all. 
We, as a church, should praise God for 
the life and the work of such a man. 
As he steps out of the ranks, who is 
fitted to take his place? He loved the 



church and withheld nothing that would 
advance her interests. His time, his 
money, his services were all freely given. 
He considered himself as one of God's 
stewards, and most nobly has he served. 
Covington, Ohio. 



ELDER GEORGE WOLFE. 



George Wolfe was the first member of 
the Brethren church ordained to the el- 
dership in Illinois. This occurred in 1813 
when he was thirty-three years old and 
was residing in Union county. The year 
before he had united with the church, 
and shortly afterwards was called to the 
ministry. His father before him was an 
elder, but died near Kaskaskia, in 1809, 
he being the first elder to be buried in 
the State. He 
had emigrated 
from Lancaster 
county, Pennsyl- 
vania, to Ken- 
tucky, and was 
on a preaching 
tour when death 
overtook Jiim. 

Eld. George 
Wolfe was not 
an educated man, 
and yet he was 
brainy, and a 
man of broad in- 
formation. Few men of his day knew 
more about the Bible than he knew. 
Nature had endowed him with a fine mind, 
and as a Bible student he made an ex- 
cellent use of his splendid mental powers. 
In every way he was looked upon as a 
strong man, mentally, spiritually ' and 
physically. He was a man of clear 
views, strong convictions, well informed 
and commanding in appearance. He 
stood over six feet, weighed about 275 
pounds, had broad shoulders, surmounted 
by a massive head, having arched eye- 
brows, a keen eye and possessed a voice 
full of melody and force. 

He seemed to talk on the most diffi- 
cult subjects without an effort, and could 




George Wolfe. 



apply his mind for hours to questions 
requiring the closest possible mental ap- 
plication. He never studied logic, and 
yet he was at home with the finest of 
logicians. He never studied grammar 
an hour, and still he would analyze lan- 
guage and discuss the meaning of words, 
phrases and sentences with the skill of 
an accomplished scholar. He probably 
never read a book on moral or mental 
philosophy, and yet he could grapple 
with these questions with all the grace 
and familiarity of an educated philoso- 
pher. He was at home in Christian 
ethics long before most of our school 
men thought of making the science a 
speciality. With his master mind he 
seems to have swept the whole mental 
horizon. Men of scholarship would lis- 
ten to his artless reasoning, logic and 
eloquence' for hours. 

In his travels., as well as in his own 
home and community, he came in con- 
tact with some of the best read men in 
the west, but never found his superior 
as a thinker and reasoner. His breadth 
of information, his thorough knowledge 
of the Bible and his ability to grapple 
with the most difficult problems won for 
him the admiration of all thinking men 
and women who were so fortunate as to 
be thrown into his society. 

The Governor of Illinois, when it was 
yet a territory, one time listened to Bro. 
Wolfe several days in a public debate, 
and afterwards said of him, that for an 
uneducated man he was the profoundest 
reasoner he ever heard. Senator Rich- 
ardson, of Quincy, said that he regarded 
Eld. Wolfe as the profoundest thinker 
the State ever produced. Had he been 
favored with a good college education he

do you wish to gather flesh, acquire an appetite, enjoy refreshing sleep and feel that 
every fibre and tissue of your body is being braced and renovated? Commence treat-

sixty years old and was all broken down in health, but through God's blessing, I am 
a new man since using the Blood Vitalizer." Not a drugstore medicine. It is sup-

would doubtless have come down in his- 
tory as one of the most gifted men of 
his generation. So favorably did he im- 
press his countrymen that he was urged 
to permit his name to go before a State 
convention as a candidate for Governor. 
He told his friends that he was a preach- 
er of the Gospel and not a politician, and 
therefore refused to run for an office. 

Soon after he began preaching he and 
a Baptist minister engaged in a union 
meeting in Jonesboro, Illinois. They 
took their turns in preaching, and peo- 
ple came far and near to hear the ser- 
mons. When the meeting closed the two 
men stood on the platform, in the pres- 
ence of a large concourse of people, and 
shook hands. The scene made such a 
profound impression that an engraver 
was employed to make for Union county 
a seal, showing the two men, standing 
with clasped hands, and now every time 
the county seal is affixed to a legal docu- 
ment, Eld. Wolfe is shown as he was 
seen on the platform at the close of the 
union meeting in Jonesboro. 

The cut accompanying this article 
shows Eld. Wolfe as he appeared when 



about eighty-two years old. It is from 
a photograph, and so far as we know this 
is the first time his picture has ever ap- 
peared in print. In 1831 he changed his 
place of residence to Adams county, and 
here he died in 1865, at the age of eighty- 
six, and was laid to rest in a country 
cemetery not far from the present village 
of Liberty. 

Speaking of him, a preacher who knew 
him personally, and had often heard him 
preach, once said: " His manner of 
speech, like his presence, was command- 
ing, yet as gentle as a child. His lan- 
guage was simple, easily understood by 
a child, and yet a philosopher would lis- 
ten to it spellbound. I have heard him 
preach two hours, but never knew any 
one to leave the congregation because 
he was not interested. In some respects 
he was the grandest preacher I ever 
heard. I never saw a man who sat under 
his artless eloquence but what rose up 
with the feeling that ' I will be a better 
man.' He was the most highly rever- 
enced man I ever saw. No man ever 
swore in his presence. He impressed 
with awe his every beholder," 



ELDER D. P. SAYLER. 



Elder Daniel P. Sayler comes from 
good German stock. He was born near 
Beaverdam, Md., 
in 1811, and his 
parents and 
grandparents be- 
fore him were 
members of the 
Brethren church, 
but he did not 
put on Christ in 
baptism until he 
was twenty-six 
years old. Three 
years later he 
was called to the 
ministry, and, 
after ten years, was ordained to the 
eldership. As a preacher of the Gospel 
he was even then a strong man. As an 




Daniel P. Sayler. 



elder of fine ability he came rapidly to 
the front, and for years wielded a wide 
influence in the councils of the Brother- 
hood. When at his best, he was an ac- 
knowledged leader among his people, 
and did as much as any other man in 
shaping the affairs of the church. 

He was most active when the church 
was blessed with such bishops as John 
Cline, James Quinter, Peter Nead, B. 
F. Moomaw and R. H. Miller. All of 
them were men of brilliant minds, well 
read, and some of them were well edu- 
cated. His experience with such think- 
ers, on the Standing Committee and 
elsewhere, helped to bring out the very 
best there was in him. 

Bro. Sayler was a man of clear views 
and decided convictions, and was quick 
to see the weak places in an argument.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



He was not a man to dispute or argue 
at length. He watched his opportunity, 
and would then let drive an argument, 
an assertion or a criticism that would 
unmercifully expose the fallacy of the 
position he meant to refute. He was an 
expert at keen -criticism and would often 
drive home his points with such irre- 
sistible force as to create a decided 
sensation. Few men cared to measure 
swords with him in the arena of contro- 
versy. There were times when he was 
a marvel in strength, keenness and ma- 
jestic personality. As a defender of 
what he conceived to be right, he stood 
like a stone wall. 

No man ever preached the Gospel with 
more boldness. He knew no fear, and 
if he believed a thing he would preach it 
though every man in his audience would 
stand up and oppose him. One time, in 
the presence of a large concourse of peo- 
ple, who grew nervous and excited over 
some of his bold and radical assertions, 
he declared that he was going to preach 
what he believed to be right if it made 
the very heavens fall. 

He was a fine-looking man, well built, 
possessed a strong, clear, ringing voice, 
-had a fine brain, packed full of informa- 
tion, stood erect, and seemed to be made 
up of positive material from the sole of 
his feet to the crown of his head. In his 
movements among men he acted as pos- 
itive as he looked. Lincoln one time 
said that if Bishop Sayler had not been 
converted he would have made a fine 
general. In the management of men he 
would have been a regular Stonewall 
Jackson. 

He was no politician, and yet he had 
his convictions regarding public matters, 
and was not backward about expressing 
them. Just before the war, he took a 
public stand against slavery, and brought 
all the force of the Bible, along with his 
keen logic and eloquence to bear against 



trafficking in human flesh and blood. 
So strong were his appeals in the inter- 
est of liberating the slaves that he 
aroused an opposition which one time 
threatened his life. Even some of his 
own brethren thought he was not doing 
just the wise thing. He did not flinch 
for a moment, but went on with his 
preaching. Even before emancipation 
became a reality, he was heard to say in 
his strong, ringing voice, that at times 
stirred an audience like a clap of thun- 
der: " I thank God that the time is here 
for the sound of the breaking of the 
shackles off the hands and feet of the 
slaves, and when the curse of slavery 
shall be destroyed forever." 

He was a great admirer of President 
Lincoln, and frequently visited him at 
the White House. He spent many an 
hour with the President, who was always 
glad to see Bishop Sayler, as he called 
him. Sometimes he would address him 
as " Bro. Sayler." Together they would 
talk over the cruel war and the terrible 
sacrifice of life at the front. Bro. Sayler 
did not believe in war, but he felt sure 
that God did not want slavery to con- 
tinue, so he sent Abraham Lincoln to 
break the shackles of slavery and set 
the black man free. 

It is related that on one occasion, 
when with the President, he chanced to 
tell him of the desire of some of his 
friends to have him accept some civil 
office, so the public might get the benefit 
of his public services, but that he had re- 
fused all offers of the kind. The Presi- 
dent told him that he considered him 
capable of filling any office to which he 
might be called; then, addressing him 
earnestly, he said: "But Bro. Sayler, I 
ordain you a Dunker preacher forever." 
And so Bro. Sayler remained a preacher 
of sound doctrine until he was called 
hence at the age oij almost seventy-four 
years.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



JOHN KLINE. 



BY L. W. TEETER. 



What a gallery our memory is! It 
brings into view the most variegated 
panorama of our past imaginable, and as 
quickly as a flashlight any form, scene 
or event, that thought may dictate, ap- 
pears on its canvas in living colors and 
real characters. No matter how often 
it is exposed, it ever remains fadeless 
and true. 

One of the most vivid photographs in 
the album of my memory is the sub- 
lime picture 
whose central 
figure is the ven- 
erable Eld. John 
Kline. 

It was in the 
smiling month of 
May, 1864, in a 
beautiful natural 
grove adjoining 
the yard of the 
old, sacred Brick 
church, when and 
where, in Gener- 
a 1 Conference, 
Eld. John Kline served as its moderator. 
Since the presiding officer, on account of 
his prominence, is more easily seen than 
anyone else in a deliberative body, I 
had a fine opportunity to study and con- 
sider the man. This I could do most 
satisfactorily without much effort be- 
cause, seemingly, he kept his heart al- 
ways turned inside out. He was with- 
out what he was within. 

My spectrum of Bro. Kline was 
formed within the brief period of about 
six days. I was then in my nineteenth 
year, but not yet a member of the 
church. My point of observation was off 
to his left, about thirty or forty feet 
away, as he stood, like a perfectly carved 
statue, in the midst of venerable church 
representatives and councilors. He 
stood facing the West, mostly, while he 
officiated. 




L. W. Teeter. 



He was a well-formed man, of good 
size, modestly dressed in an out-and-out 
blue jeans suit, made strictly plain in 
the order, and well fitting. Associated 
with his appearance were the appropriate 
characteristics of saintly deportment, 
refined address and natural force of 
character, all of which impressed the ob- 
server favorably. I remember his ven- 
erable countenance, the very index of 
firmness and deliberateness, and, withal 
a kindly, loving disposition. All this on- 
ly confirmed and emphasized what I had 
known of him previously by reputation 
only. 

At this conference were present some 
of the renowned sages, such as Henry 
Kurtz and D. P. Sayler. Others, young- 
er, were coming to the fore, such as 
James Quinter, R. H. Miller, etc. The 
latter two, with others younger in years, 
gave evidence of fundamental worth and 
must have impressed Eld. John Kline to 
note carefully in his diary, on the even- 
ing of the first day of the public discus- 
sion, as follows: 

" Tuesday, May 17. — Discuss questions 
all day. Good order prevails. I am glad 
to witness the dawning of intelligence in 
the minds of our younger brethren in the 
ministry. We must keep up with the de- 
mands of the age; not in the vain show of 
worldly fashion and for things new, but in 
our desire and power, by the use of all 
divinely-appointed means, to commend the 
truth to every man's conscience, by mak- 
ing it to shine in all directions more and 
more unto the perfect day. I am glad to 
see the zeal manifest in our younger breth- 
ren, and at the same time we are equally 
glad to find it tempered with moderation." 
— John Kline, p. 473. 

But to all the foregoing picture of 
Eld. John Kline there was a crimson 
background, hardly in sight at the time 
of exposure. It was but twenty-eight 
days after the diary note above quoted 
was jotted down until its background 
was developed by the diffusion of his 
life's blood upon it. The deadly missile 



30 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



of a concealed foe ended his life on the 
public highway near his home in Rock- 
ingham county, Va. It was here, in the 
Nettle Creek congregation, one and a 
half miles from where I was born and 
raised, a mile west of Hagerstown, Ind., 
my present home, where the conference 
was held which proved to be Eld. John 
Kline's last one. During the short pe- 
riod of his sojourn here, he impressed 
himself upon the minds of this commu- 
nity as a great, good man. 

We were now in the midst of the 
great Civil War. Daily papers were read 
on the conference grounds by many. 
The horrors of cruel war throbbed the 
hearts of parents whose sons were in 
the bloody strife. Naturally enough, pa- 
triotic blood was at high temperature. 
In the midst of this state of feeling came 
the shocking intelligence of the tragic 
death of Eld. John Kline, the work of a 
blood-thirsty assassin. Language is too 
feeble to express the high excitement 
that followed the sad ^event in the com- 
munity of the recent Conference, where 
he had made many new acquaintances. 
Many were the expressions of sympathy, 



and all felt that a great and good man 
had passed to his reward. 

It was now that the long, protracted 
battle of the Wilderness was in progress 
in Virginia. Likely on account of so 
much southern commotion, now, he was 
prompted to say, at the close of his 
last sermon in these parts: "Possibly 
you may never see my face, or hear my 
voice again. I am now on my way back 
to Virginia, not knowing the things 
that shall befall me there. It may be 
that bonds and afflictions abide me. But 
I feel that I have done nothing worthy 
of bonds or of death; and none of these 
things move me; neither count I my life 
dear unto myself, so that I may finish 
my course with joy, and the ministry 
which I have received of the Lord Jesus 
to testify the gospel of the grace of 
God." 

As I review and consider again what 
little I know of Eld. John Kline, there 
arises an unbidden desire for more such 
modern apostles of God, — men who have 
the welfare of the church at heart, and 
not the world.

THE BRETHREN MISSION FIELD IN INDIA. 



BY J. M; BLOUGH. 



The Brethren mission field in India 
extends along the Arabian Sea on the 
western coast, north from Bombay, a 
distance of about 300 miles, but in width 
does not exceed about seventy-five miles, 
yet it extends into the mountains on the 
east. It lies wholly within the torrid 
zone and so, for a part of the year, the 
weather is very hot, especially at inland 
points, but along the coast the climate 
is tempered by the sea-breeze. 

Now if you will look at the map, I 
shall try to point out to you the places 
where your missionaries live, for the 
towns are underlined and so you can 
readily find them. The most northern 
station near the coast is Anklesvar, 
where Bro. McCann's formerly lived, 



and where, for six years, there was a 
boys' orphanage. Here is where Bro. 
Stover's are now living. 

East of Anklesvar is the Raj Pipla 
State, which is governed by a native 
king. In this state our Brethren did 
much relief work during the famine of 
seven years ago, and many of our orphan 
children are from here. Here also, right 
after the famine, Bro. McCann baptized 
several hundred into the church. In a 
small town, near Umalla, where Bro. 
Lichty's and Sister Sadie Miller live, 
they have a nice little Christian com- 
munity around them. Their bungalow 
has been finished and soon they hope 
to build a little church. 

In the northeast corner of the State 



31 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



is Nandod, the capital, where Bro. E. H. 
Eby had hoped to locate a year ago, but 
was refused entrance by the king, so he 
has located . at Jhagadia instead. This 
is on the railroad between Anklesvar and 
Umalla. Here a small, cheap house was 
put up, into which Bro. Eby's moved 
near the first of July, 1907. 

South from here, on the Tapti railroad 
is Vyara where Bro. Ross's live. This 
is our only station in the Baroda State, 
which is the most important native State 
in western India. The king is very pro- 
gressive and is pushing education very 
rapidly throughout his whole realm. He 



visited America in 1906 and himself 
seems very liberal but it is hard to do 
mission work in his kingdom. The low- 
er officers are opposed to missionaries. 
•Bro. Ross has not yet been able to buy 
land, but is living in a rented house, and 
it seems as if it might be hard even to 
rent in the future. We hope for the best. 
Southeast from here is the Dang State, 
in which is Ahwa our most eastern sta- 
tion. Bro. Pittenger's moved here in 
January, 1907. They are far from the 
railroad and the rest of the missionaries, 
and seldom get to see white faces, but 
are happy and joyful in their work. 




32 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Their work is among the jungle people 
and it is a most promising field. This 
State is under the English government. 

Returning west again, to the railroad 
near the coast, we have Jalalpur, where 
Bro. Long's are living. This station 
was first occupied by Bro. Forney's, and 
for five years they had a boys' orphan- 
age here. Along the coast in this taluka 
lives a large number of fishermen, and 
among them quite a bit of work is car- 
ried on, mainly by means of schools, and 
the work continues promising. The 
fisherman are a nice class of people. 

South, along the railroad twenty-five 
miles, is Bulsar which is the station first 
occupied by our Brethren. This was in 
1905, when Bro. Stover's and Sister Ryan 
opened the work in India. Soon after 
this, an orphanage was established for 
boys and girls and has been carried on 
ever since. This has formed the princi- 
pal work at this station all the while. 
Sister Eliza Miller has worked here in 
the orphanage for seven years and now, 
while she is on furlough, Sister Quinter 
takes her place in the Girls' Orphanage. 
The Industrial School is in charge of 
Bro. Emmert and the Boys' Orphanage 
in care of Bro. Blough. 

Coming to the southern part of our 
field, we have Dahanu near the sea, 
where Bro. Adam Ebey's have lived sever- 



al years. They bought land and built a 
bungalow several miles east of the rail- 
road, which makes it convenient to work 
among the Varli people. So, at present, 
there is only a native worker living at 
Dahanu railroad station. While Bro. 
Ebey's are home on furlough, Bro. Bru- 
baker's will be in charge. While near 
about Dahanu there is a great deal of 
Gujerati spoken, yet this is considered 
Marathi territory, especially so where 
the bungalow is. 

In the extreme southeast of our field 
is Vada, where Bro. Berkebile's and Sis- 
ter Powell live. This is Marathi terri- 
tory and under English government. 
Bro. Berkebile's have a number of inter- 
esting Sunday schools in town and 
around. They are living in a rented 
house still, but are building a mission 
bungalow now and are also digging a 
well. Vada, Dahanu and Ahwa are our 
three Marathi stations. 

This is how far we have been able to 
occupy this land. We need more sta- 
tions, hence more missionaries. In our 
territory there are, on an average, 38,- 
000 people to each missionary. How can 
we preach to them all? Generally speak- 
ing, there is no one but your own mis- 
sionaries to bring the Gospel of salva- 
tion to the 1,000,000 heathen in our field. 
Help us save them for Jesus' sake.

THE ANNUAL MEETING FOR 1908. 



The Annual Meeting for 1908 is to be 
held on the State Fair grounds, Des 
Moines, Iowa, beginning on Tuesday 
morning, June 9. The Standing Com- 
mittee will meet and organize on Thurs- 
day morning, June 4. Each district is 
entitled to one elder on this committee. 
Districts having 3,500 or more members 
are entitled to two elders. In the open 
conference each congregation, however 
small, may be represented by one dele- 
gate, either from the laity or the official 
body. Congregations having two hun- 
dred members have the privilege of 
sending two delegates. Sisters may 



serve as delegates from the churches, 
but they cannot serve on the Standing 
Committee. Only regularly-ordained el- 
ders, or bishops, can s-erve on this com- 
mittee. Where there is opposition, it 
requires a two-thirds vote of the dele- 
gates and Standing Committee to carry 
a question in the open conference. 

As early as the middle of the week, 
June 3, there will be meetings on the 
grounds. A committee has been ap- 
pointed to arrange a Bicentennial pro- 
gram, and this program may take up all 
the time prior to the opening of the con- 
ference proper. In due time the pro- 



33 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC 



gram, with a list of the subjects and the 
speakers, will be published in the Mes- 
senger. 

The accommodations for the confer- 
ence are said to be as good as those en- 
joyed at Springfield, in 1906. Des Moines 
is a railroad center, being favored by a 
number of good lines. Accommodations 
in this respect could hardly be any bet- 
ter. 

The Committee of Arrangements for 
the meeting is as follows: Foreman, 
W. E. West, Ankeny, Iowa; assistant 
foreman, I. W. Brubaker, R. D. 2, Mon- 
roe, Iowa; secretary, John E. Mohler, R. 
D. 3, Des Moines, Iowa; treasurer, Geo. 
B. Royer, Dallas Center, Iowa; John 
Zuck, Clarence, Iowa. 

THE PIVOTAL QUESTION. 

By Wilbur B. Stover. 

About one hundred years ago, Carey 
was selling the first Bengali Bible for 
$20 a copy. Now the Bible is sold in 
almost all languages of India for 33 
cents a copy. Shall we have a part in 
that work? 

Over 2,000 foreign mission workers 
and over 7,000 native catechists or 
preachers are at work in India, Burma 
and Ceylon. Shall we have a part in 
that? 

More than half a • million boys and 
girls are now in attendance at mission 
schools in India. Shall we have a part 
in that? 

The mission hospital at Ajmere has 
over 100,000 visits a year. That at Ar- 
cot, with its dispensaries, has over 
120,000. They preach the Gospel to these 
people. Shall we have a part in such 
work? 

About 1,200 " female agents," foreign 
and Eurasian, are heralding the glad ti- 
dings in India. Shall we have a part in 
that? 

The pivotal question is not, " Shall we 
have a part?" but, "What part shall we 
have in this?" Shall the Brethren be 
last on the list of mission people? Shall 



we be least when the sum total of gifts 
for missions is made up? Shall we be 
lowest when the result of the year's 
work is shown? 

We think we understand our work on 
the field. It is to find men and win 
them to Christ, to train men for the 
work of the Gospel, and to lead men 
in that work. We must be leaders of 
men. If we cannot be that, we had bet- 
ter be leaders of horses in the cornfields 
at home. 

How can we be a mission people? 
Read, pray, sacrifice, consecrate, give, 
work up! One hundred to one is but 
" reasonable service." One hundred, 
members, one missionary, one hundred 
cents, one member; one hundred dollars, 
one congregation. The day of small 
things we cannot despise, but we must 
move away from the day of small things^ 
The Brethren church expects every man 
to do his duty. Then shall we be a mis- 
sion people. Then shall we see the 
glory of the Father.

GOING SECURITY. 

About giving security, Success has this 
excellent thing to say: 

"He that is surety for a stranger 
shall smart for it; but he that hateth 
suretyship is sure." " My son, if thou art 
become surety for thy neighbors, thou 
art snared with the words of thy mouth." 
So said the royal merchant of Israel, 
who was "wiser than all other men." 

" Becoming surety for others," said 
John Grigg, formerly a well-known pub- 
lisher of Philadelphia, "is the cause of 
one-half of the failures in business." 

Too often suretyship has been a mill- 
stone which has dragged the business 
man down to ruin. Help your friend 
with such gifts, and accommodate him 
with such loans as you can afford, but 
do not take the chance of crippling 
yourself for life, and taking food and 
shelter from those who have a right to 
expect these things of you, by signing 
his paper.

MINISTERIAL LIST. 



Corrected up to and Including November 8, 1907. 



For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe- 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fire-proof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brothei 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections made will appear in the Almanac list for 1908.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Let every sufferer who has failed to find relief from ordinary remedies 
listen to this : 

YOU WANT TO GET WELL DON'T YOU? And the one who shows 
you the way will prove a friend indeed. You have tried many remedies faith- 
fully without permanent relief, and it is not strange that you begin to wonder, 
in despair, if there is after all, no means of restoring to you' the most price- 
less of all possessions, good health. But, stop a moment ! Just take this view 
of your case. Say to yourself : 

" Sickness is not a natural condition. God never intended me to be a 
poor-disease-ridden creature, without relief or hope of happiness in life. There 
must be some way back to health, for surely Nature provides a remedy for 
every ill if we could but find it." 

There is a way, which Nature herself, has provided. There is a remedy 
which may cure you — a very old, time-tried remedy — known as DR. PETER'S 
BLOOD VITALIZER. It is Nature's own medicine, because it is made of 
Nature's materials ; the herbs, barks and leaves gathered by skilled hands from 
the fields and woods. It was first made by Dr. Peter Fahrney, the " old herb 
doctor," in 1780, and this remarkable preparation — just as he originally pre- 
pared it for the people of the Blue Ridge Mountain district of Pennsylvania 
has been handed down through four generations to the present proprietors. 

Thousands have been cured by it, many suffering possibly from the very 
trouble which you find such a heavy burden. Now, don't you think that a 
remedy that has relieved so much suffering and done so much good, is entitled 
to your confidence? And don't you think it would be wise — the only safe 
thing — to give it a trial? Note the testimonials that are appearing regularly 
in the public press 

DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER is not a ready-made, drugstore 
medicine. It is sold only through agents or direct from the laboratory. If no 
agent is at hand, write to 

Dr. Peter Fahrney & Sons Co.,

WASHINGTON 

BROTHER = SISTER = FRIEIND 

Are you thinking of changing your location? 
THEN INVESTIGATE WASHINGTON 



Wenatchee is located in the exact center of the State of Washington, 
on the main line of the Great Northern Railway and at the junction of the 
Wenatchee and Columbia Rivers. Our Brethren have a strong church here, 
well equipped for work, and another is to be organized in the spring of 1908. 

We own town site in East Wenatchee and will offer inducements to our 
Brethren to locate and go into business there. I have 100,000 acres of land 
for sale and propose to form colonies of our Brethren and settle new Dis- 
tricts. 

The lands that can be irrigated are rapidly being bought up by large 
companies, water put on, and sold in small tracts on easy terms (one-fifth 
down, the balance in or under five years eight per cent annual interest). 

New towns are springing up, giving fine opportunities for every oc- 
cupation. 

In the Valley, Fruic Raising under irrigation is the leading industry. 
Peach orchards at three years make their owners from three hundred to 
five hundred Dollars an acre. Apple orchards, three to six years old yield 
three to five hundred Dollars. Full-bearing peach orchards yield as high 
as fifteen hundred Dollars, and apple two thousand Dollars per acre in a 
single crop. 

While the trees are growing we grow berries, cantaloupes, etc., and 
realize from one hundred to five hundred Dollars per acre. 

All the while you are getting these big quick yields your land is in- 
creasing in value. Our Brethren bought land in 1903 at $165 per acre and 
three years later some refused $1000 per acre. 

Poultry and bees pay well. Eggs seldom sell for less than thirty cents 
a dozen. Winter eggs bring forty-five cents a dozen. 

We have good markets, Our apples are shipped into many foreign 
countries. We get as high as $3.25 per box of 48 pounds, for good winter 
varieties, at our warehouses. 

These statements, if true, are worth investigating. If not true you may 
investigate at my expense, I paying your fare both ways. 

If you want land where you can carry on diversified farming without 
irrigation, write me. 

If you want to go into any kind of business, write me. 

If you will send me your name and address on a postal card I will mail 
you valuable printed matter free. 

Investigate! Do not wait until it is too late. This western country 
is rapidly filling up. Every year lessens your opportunity for securing a 
home in this favored land where you may enjoy the luxury of a health pro- 
ducing and health retaining climate, with no blizzards, no extreme cold, no 
wind in winter, no drouth, no floods.
